Historic Allegheny Stables Development
The last remaining municipal building remaning in the former city of Allegheny, the Allegheny City Stables building, will be redeloved into a $7.5 million residential complex. The building held horses for the city of Allegheny until it was annexed by Pittsburgh in 1907. It later housed the Bureau of Highways and Sewers within Pittsburgh’s Public Works Department.
Go Realty are now restoring the site to include a 36-unit apartment building containing studio, one-bedroom, and two bedroom options.
The groundbreaking event was held on June 12th, and the site is aimed to be move-in ready by next summer.

We Like Bikes! - Northside Bike Friendly Business Program
In coordination with Walk Ride Northside, our bike/ped advocacy committee, we are thrilled to introduce the new "We Like Bikes!" - Northside Bike Friendly Business Program!!
We Like Bikes! is a program that aims to raise ridership in the Northside, increase the bicycle safety and friendliness of the Northside, and encourage people to support Northside businesses.
So how does it work? Our network of We Like Bikes! business partners offer free water and restroom access to riders, as well as provide various repair tools (such as tire pumps, tire levers, chain tools, screwdriver/wrench multi-tools, and patch kits) for riders to utilize. If you are riding through the Northside and are in need of any of these services or tools: first look for a We Like Bikes! decal in one of our business partner's windows, stop in and mention the program, use what you need, maybe stick around the shop for a while, and then have a safe ride to wherever your destination may be!
A huge thanks to One Northside Pgh for providing funding for the program, and to Bear Dog Bicycles for coordinating the repair tools.
Please see the map below to find the We Like Bikes! business partner locations:
And a huge thank you to our business partners!!
